Though the Johns Hopkins University has an outstanding and justified reputation for excellence in the sciences and engineering as well as cutting-edge research, it is less known for political engagement. Yet throughout the university’s history there has been significant involvement by both students and faculty in preeminent political issues. At times, certain issues have captured the attention of the university and its students, sparking significant on-campus political activity, especially during the Civil Rights era in the 1960s and the antiwar movement in the 60s and 70s.
